Clinton Bike Fest This Weekend!

The Clinton Bike Fest will take place May 1 from 12 noon - 5pm

The Bike & Pedestrian Alliance of Clinton (BPAC) invites you to the First Annual Clinton Bike Fest & Street Fair on May Day – May 1, 12 – 5 pm.

Join the fun at noon at Town Hall for the Family Fun Ride/Walk out to the Clinton Marina (registration begins at 10:30 am). At the same time, a longer ride for more road-savvy cyclists will head out to the beach by way of Beach Park Road. Participants in all rides are required to wear a properly fitting bike helmet and should bring a water bottle along for the ride.

From 1 – 5 pm there will be activities behind Town Hall, including food and information booths, music, bike demos, pedicab rides, and a bike rodeo for young cyclists (grades 3-5) to learn bike safety and smart cycling skills (bike and helmet required). The bike rodeo will be set up in the parking lot behind Town Hall and will run from 2 – 4:30 or so. New groups of participants will form every 20 minutes between 2 and 3 pm, with each group requiring a little over an hour to complete the course. Inside Town Hall, the Historical Society Museum will be open for tours. Lots of exciting events will also be happening on Post Office Square all afternoon, where singing, dancing, yoga and zumba classes will take place, and there will be musicians and an open mike for jamming. Museums and shops on Main Street will be open for business as well.
